Haiti vs US Imperialism: People’s Struggle against Dictatorship

(Register below for the Zoom webinar link)

Haiti’s ongoing political, social, and economic crisis has reached new heights after February 7 when President Jovenel Moïse’s term ended. In complete disregard for the constitution, he refuses to step down. The Haitian people have mobilized in protests and strikes against this latest attempt by the ruling class and their supporters in the US government and the OAS to sabotage democracy.

Join us for a conversation with Camille Chalmers, Mamyrah Dougé-Prosper and Sabine Lamour as we dive into an analysis of Haiti’s current context, the implications of US imperialism for democracy, and the state of popular struggles.
